Sunday's outcome at New England was tough for the Texans.
They fell 27-20 to the Patriots at Gillette Stadium, but nobody was tougher on themselves than quarterback Deshaun Watson.
"For me, personally, I think it was terrible on my part," the second-year quarterback said. "You can put the 'L' on me."
Watson completed 17-of-34 passes for 176 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. Even though he pinned the blame on himself, his head coach was quick to point out it was a team loss.
"He fought," Bill O'Brien said. "He was getting hit."
Watson was sacked three times and hit a total of 12 times. He had eight carries for 40 yards, and vowed to improve on his performance.
"I'll be way better than what I showed today," Watson said. "My energy was low. I was just overthinking little things. We just gotta capitalize in the red zone. Don't turn the ball over. Continue to do what we do."
Watson and the Texans will get a chance to fix those things next Sunday in Nashville, when they take on the Tennessee Titans.
